Peter Flierl reports in The Columbia Paper that Consolidated Communications is seeking a cable franchise in the Town of Canaan.

Town Supervisor Richard Keaveney said there is demand for broadband internet access in Canaan, but the story does not say what Canaan will do with the Consolidated request.
